New boss Xavi don't need Sadio Mane after long-term Barcelona link and explains why


Xavi has made feelings on Liverpool and Sadio Mane clear

Former Spain midfielder Xavi Hernandez
 has returned to Barcelona as manager after reaching an agreement with his boyhood club.

The 41-year-old replaces Ronald Koeman, having left Qatari side Al Sadd, and has already spoken about his feelings towards Liverpool and one of the Reds’ current players.

Sadio Mane was tentatively linked with a move to Barcelona in the past, following his impressive form for Liverpool, but the new Barca boss claimed the winger would not be a good signing for the club.

Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is  the latest player to be linked with a move to the Nou Camp and Xavi said that neither would be a good fit for Barca.

"Mane and Aubemayang can kill you in open space. But Barcelona need players who know how to move in small spaces," Xavi said last year's summer, via The Mirror.

"I am thinking about player who would adapt to Barcelona and it's not easy to find one. Samuel Eto'o was perfect as is Luis Suarez right now."
